I got to the ER at 3 am with severe stomach pain. Doctor Kahane was on call and took care of me right away, assuring my family all the time of the test results, type of surgery and the many details they needed to know to feel a bit less nervous. He is an excellent Doctor I wished Miami had more like him; I believe the patients would be better taken care of by a true professional Thank you Doctor Kahane and Staff.
